School kids can likely put down their pencils and pick up their mittens Monday morning as a storm is likely to blast the Chattanooga area with 4 to 6 inches of snow.

WRCB-TV Channel 3 meteorologist Nick Austin said he expects to see light, fluffy snow come down constantly from after midnight Sunday through Monday night.

"Good for sledding, building snowmen, snowball fights, all that stuff," he said. "Bad for driving."
